Today has been quite the stressful day, and so many times I have almost gone to reach for a snack, and then I realized that I can’t, because the only snacky things I crave when I stress are carbs. Truly, this has freed me from so much EXTRA stress that I would have put on my body for eating all that junk, and I have been relieved all day that I am just simply not allowed to eat those things right now 🙂
So, after school today, and after working about an hour, I took a break and made a snack:
1 large pink lady apple with 1 tbsp. of sunflower seed butter. Delicious!
This is a fantastic snack, and a nice switch from the typical peanut butter. You can purchase this at your local Trader Joes, if you have one! The raw almond butter is also a great choice! I have yet to try cashew butter. Anyone tried it before?
Now, for DINNER!
This was absolutely the best salmon I have EVER had! Remember last time I made it, and I claimed it was the best?
Well, this time beats even that! It was SO good!
I cooked it in olive oil, garlic, and a rosemary marinade and it was OUTSTANDING
When it was done cooking (about 10 minutes in a pan over medium heat) I put it on top of my sautéed veggies and drizzled all the leftover garlic-y sauce on top! SO good!
To sauté the veggies, I put them in a pan over medium heat and olive oil, then I added some garlic and a little bit of the same rosemary marinade to flavor
This mix of veggies had frozen “asian-style” veggies, fresh organic spinach, and whole raw cashews
It was simply amazing. To top it all off, I put a few slices of perfectly ripe avocado on the side.
You call this a ‘diet?’ I don’t think so! This was probably the best meal I have had in a long time- it was THAT good! And the great thing, is it is 100% healthy, and I am so satisfied and full. Amazing how that works 😉
Now, go make yourself a delicious healthy dinner that you’re going to feelgreat about! I’m so excited about my healthy eats today; I feel accomplished! Now, I am off to the gym! See you back here later for a petite treat if my tummy calls for it 😉
